Location: Gordon Neighbourhood House, 1019 Broughton Street, Vancouver
Organized By: West End Neighbourhood Food Network

Join West End Urban Garden Club’s WeBee group for an interactive workshop on pollinators with Erin from Environmental Youth Alliance and learn how to recognize some of the native species in Vancouver.

Find out what types of plants will support our local bees and keep them buzzing in our balconies and garden – even the smallest green spaces can make a difference!

The new WENFN-GNH-VV community seed library will be present, and you’ll be able to get some free seeds – including pollinator attractant seeds – for your garden, or swap or donate seeds.

Free. To register: info.wenfn@gmail.com.

Presented by West End Neighbourhood Food Network (https://foodwestend.wordpress.com/)
and Gordon Neighbourhood House (http://gordonhouse.org/).
